We are looking to build a Kingsley in the near future and are wondering about length restrictions. The coach we want is 56ft without the Stacker Trailer which would take the lenght to over 85 ft. What can we do to get away with extreme lenght when driving through states with short lenght restrictions???

First, very cool video in the dunes. Kinda reminded me of that video of Robby Gordon launching his trophy truck at Glamis. Now that was some serious airtime.

Well 85ft, that is going to be a toughie if your going to paint that thing up with Speedtrap logo's. The DOT police are going to be all over you guys. But if you keep it all personal use looking you might be O.K. in a good percentage of states. I think Cali might be the roughest on you though.

I see you have a pic of a Powerhouse Conversion on your website. Is that yours? Did or do you like it? Looking at Kingsley, if you want high end interior with all of the bells and whistles they are probably your best bet. If that is not super critical, you may want to look into guys like Show Hauler, Renegade, Trendsetter and the rest of them. It could save you huge dollars.

Keep us posted.

You won't have nearly the problem on interstate highways as you will on local roads. I had a 48 foot gooseneck behind my freightliner and was 74 feet long. Let me tell you that I was hitting every curb in sight trying to make the corners on local roads.
